    I am just wondering if anybody knows of any problems with upgrading the HD in the Macbooks to a 160gb like the HDs in the Pros?

    Thanks,

    As long as you're not trying to ram an ATA HDD into the SATA connection, you'll be gold with any 2.5" SATA HDD.

    Provided you have a grasp on the concept, I don't really know how you could have problems upgrading the MacBook's HDD. It doesn't come much easier, though the little "L" shaped metal piece can be tricky to screw back in.

    Thanks

    Cool, thanks. Do you know if it will eat up much more power than normal? Anybody recommend what brand of HD to buy?
